    I picked up my first 1911 double stack (a Springfield 1911A1). It’s immediately obvious that the grips are different from a standard 1911 to accommodate the extra thickness. Are there any good sources for replacement grips? I don’t see any in the VZ site…I’d like something a little better than...

    I'm pretty set on getting a double stack 1911 or a 2011 as my next gun and all these nice guns on sale in the classifieds are really tempting. Primary use for this gun would be for range use and home defense. I probably won't have time/energy to compete for a while due to young kids, but never...

    Decided my recently acquired double stack 1911 A1 needs a new mag catch, called SA this AM to see if they were available. The CS guy says no, not for sale to the public, but they have them in stock for repairs. Then he reminded me that SA's have a lifetime warranty, and mine should be covered...

    Notice #1 on this list of overrated and unreliable guns. Not saying one YouTuber is the gospel, but it sure does seem that the double stack pops up from time to time as having issues. Which is concerning to me as I figure next year, I’ll be looking at getting one.

    I've decided I need a doublestack 1911 in 9mm And I've been looking at the Alchemy Quantico and the Nighthawk. My question is on either of these how much thicker is the grip frame in YOUR hand. I tried a Staccato p and I felt the grip frame was to thick or wide for me .

    Just picked this up yesterday... lightweight, excellent build quality/fit and finish. Smooth as butter. Looks easy to conceal, even with the 15 round capacity. Slightly larger and thicker than my Wilson EDC X9S. This appears to be a winner and an excellent value for those looking at double...

    Been considering a double stack 1911 but I Don’t have large hands. For comparison, I have no issue with my single stack 1911s with medium triggers or my Glock 19 with a flat trigger. Any inputs would be appreciated.

    Anyone here have one? If so what's your opinion of it?

    Up for sale next is a Wilson Combat EDC X9L that I got in a trade. The original owner said he put 300 rounds through it, but it sure doesn't look like even that! It is in excellent condition with the exception of some finish wear on the rail from a light being mounted on it - I show this in the...

    That is not a typo, the company was named 'Entreprise' and this is my latest impulse buy. Apparently they were around from the mid-'90s to early-'00s, started by selling FALs that they were putting together, moved to selling wide body 1911 kits and then their own line of double stack 1911s...

    Some of you have probably already send this but I thought it was good background reading on the evolution of the 1911/2011. https://www.thefreelibrary.com/SINGLE+ACTION+HI-CAPS%3A+A+century+to+perfection%3F-a0515975309

    I started thinking about my next 1911 acquisition and felt I should give a double stack a shot. Curious whether other addicts ever had the same urge. 1. Do you own one? If so, would you buy it again if you had to do it over again? 2. I've seen them in 45ACP, 9mm and also .40S&W - any...
